Nearly a year to the day that sales launched at Ben Shaoul’s Katz’s Deli-eclipsing condo on Houston, the 11-story building has topped out. Ten of the building’s 94 apartments are currently on the market, ranging from a $1.075 million studio to a $4.8 million three-bedroom apartment.
The building was made possible when Shaoul purchased a strip of single story restaurants between Orchard and Ludlow streets in 2014 for $75 million, alongside the air rights from neighbor Katz’s Deli. (Don’t worry, the pastrami institution isn’t going anywhere—or so it seems.)
The building will be home to a two-story Equinox gym—that’s right, this area of Houston is about to smell like a spa rather than trash—as well as a shared rooftop for residents, and personal and bike storage.
